Rouben Mamoulian

This is a true story.



In the 1970's I was working for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. One of our Producers had a guest film director for an interview as he was in Australia to attend the Sydney Film Festival. The wife of this Producer was a friend of mine and one day she asked me: "Sue, Rouben Mamoulian is in the next office with Brian. Would you like to go and meet him?" I replied that I'd pass because I'd never heard of him (I was only 24). Some years later, when I realized… Continue

The re-restored METROPOLIS on the big screen

This afternoon, I went and saw the silent science-fiction classic METROPOLIS at the Browning Theater on the campus of the University of Notre Dame. This is the recently re-restored version, which includes nearly a half-hour worth of footage taken from a 16MM print found in Buenos Aires a couple years ago. This footage had never been included in any other known prints. The footage was added to the print which was restored by the Murnau Foundation earlier this decade.

The "new" footage…

What I'm Watching

Classic Film References in Woody Allen’s Manhattan Murder Mystery

It’s no secret that Woody Allen likes old movies, maybe even as much as we do. Many of his films pay tribute to the classics. Tonight I’ve been rewatching Manhattan Murder Mystery, and I think I’m enjoying it more than ever before because I’m getting more of Woody’s references to our beloved old…

What Have I Done?

I'm pretty sure I've just done something incredibly stupid. I've just opened a door to a room I'll never get out of. I'm no stranger to incredible acts of stupidity that fly in the face of all logic, but this might just be my doom.

You see, I've always enjoyed collecting figures from movies, anime, videogames, whatever. Everybody likes collecting, but that's not the point. I'm obsessive compulsive which means if there…

Hey Everyone,

Remember Last Night?

I remember seeing this back in 2006 on TCM, it was what introduced me (again) to Robert Young. I had no idea the handsome leading man was Jim Anderson until I looked him up on the IMDB. I kept thinking I recognized him but couldn't quite place him. I was pretty shocked to say the least that this was the same actor, more than that though I was impressed.

Remember Last Night? revolves around a murder mystery set in the…

Paring Down My List of Shame

True confession: a long while back, Ilsa Lund’s discussion “What classic movies are you ashamed to admit you haven’t seen?” really hit home. I’ve actually been too ashamed to admit publicly how many must-sees I haven’t seen. But, in my defense, I’ve been working very hard at filling in the gaps.



Previously, I had been spending all my movie…

Affairs of the Heart: The Wedding Night (1935)

To view The Wedding Night click here. The Wedding Night was doomed from the start. It was producer Samuel Goldwyn’s final attempt at making the Ukrainian actress Anna Sten into a Garbo-level star, and his persistence had become something of a Hollywood joke. The Wedding Night became known around town as “Goldwyn’s Last Sten,” but […]

Murnau and the Phantoms of Germany

To view Phantom click here. It’s that time of year when Nosferatu (1922), F.W. Murnau’s interpretation of Dracula, appears on lists of recommended horror films. The oldest, existing film version of Bram Stoker’s novel, Nosferatu is likely Murnau’s most watched title. It’s eerie Expressionist style was a major influence on the American horror genre, but […]
